People of Color Building Community for Transgender Rights

Centilia Cultural Center
1660 S Roberto Maestas Festival St, Seattle, Washington 98144
Every day more trans and queer people of color become part of our communities in Washington state, often navigating between LGBTQ and POC spaces to live their most empowered truth. Historically, the QTPOC community has been at the forefront of challenging systemic injustices against both the LGBTQ and their extended POC community, but often have also been marginalized, erased and silenced.

This event will provide an opportunity for communities of color to come together to uplift the experiences of transgender and gender diverse people of color and share the existing work. The evening will feature a panel of transgender people of color, followed by a discussion on how we as a community can seek justice for transgender people. Dinner will be provided.

Please let us know of any specific language interpretation needs by Wednesday, July 12.

For the comfort of all attendees, please refrain from wearing colognes, perfumes or other scented or chemical products to the event.
